A Message from the Executive Director of Lake Superior Big Top Chautauqua:
Our Response to the Global Health Emergency
May 4, 2020
Dear Big Top Family,
Usually this time of year we are so anxious to announce our exciting line up of summer shows. Winter/Spring is a very busy time of preparation to get everything ready to welcome you to the tent in June. However, after weighing countless scenarios to determine the most viable and responsible way to plan, we are deeply saddened to share that we will be cancelling our 2020 season at Big Top Chautauqua. For the past 33 summers, our summer concert ritual has been fed by our collective soul under our Blue Canvas. During this Long Intermission, we must remain steadfast in what the future holds and that we are resilient and strong.
If you hold tickets to any of our shows, you have several options:
- Donate your tickets. Tax-deductible contributions are critical in helping us continue operations during this crisis. Learn more and donate your tickets HERE.
- Credit to your account to use for future performances, merchandise, etc. No action is necessary.
- Request a refund. Complete THIS FORM.
We are beyond grateful to our donors and patrons. If you are able to donate your tickets or hold your money on account rather than request a refund, we would be most grateful. That said, please do what is best for you in this difficult time. Your support is deeply appreciated during this crisis. As our stage may sit empty through the summer, we recognize even more now the value and power of experiencing music together. We will get through this together.
At this time our office is currently closed to the public – we invite you to connect via phone and online. Until we can meet again, we are committed to you and everyone in our community. Please watch your inbox, our website and our social channels for updates, information and creative ways to keep music centered in your hearts and homes. We are thinking of you, all of our Big Top family and the world's people at this difficult time. Please reach out with questions or comments, or just send us a note to keep in touch.

Love to you all,
